Angie’s Mess Free BLT

Posted By Angie On July 4, 2013 @ 5:00 pm In Recipes | No Comments

Nothing beats a good BLT. Only, it can get frustrating when the bacon pieces fall out and you have to put them back in for each bite. I have devised a plan to thwart the escaping bacon.  I weave it. First of all you have to bake the bacon so it’s flat. Fried bacon gets all curly. I use Tidymom’s [5] recipe for bacon, but before it’s baked, line your bacon in the pan and weave the other bacon over & under the previous pieces. Make sure they’re touching and tight. For the dressing, I like Erin’s Parmesan Mayo [6] with some onions and garlic added.

When the bacon is done, cut it sandwich size with your scissors. Perfect fit, no escaping bacon!

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese

  • Dredge your bacon in the flour and weave it in the pan. Bake it for 30 minutes at 350 for thick slices.  Little less for thinner bacon.
